Using our time-tested “Gracie Games,” we are able to teach the Little Champs a series of basic self-defense techniques while instilling the foundational principles of leverage and control. Once a child perfects all 10 Gracie Games, they’re ready for the Jr. Grapplers program.
“Every day, 160,000 children miss school out of fear or intimidation of a bully.”
-National Education Association
A confident child is a Bullyproof child. At some point or another, every child will be targeted by a bully. The Gracie Bullyproof objective is to give your child the physical, psychological, and verbal tools to overcome bullies. Our aim is not to encourage confrontation, but rather, to reduce fear and build confidence in order to reduce your child’s risk of being targeted.
Black Belt Club
If they have the fire, we’ll feed it!
Children who perfect the Jr. Grapplers’ techniques and demonstrate exceptional focus and discipline are invited to join the Black Belt Club. This is our most advanced kids’ program and joining the Club is the highest honor for any youth practitioner.
Powerful Character Development
In addition to unshakable confidence, our goal is to develop your child’s character to ensure success in all aspects of life. There are six chapters in the Gracie Character Development Program: Responsibility, Health, Respect, Citizenship, Manners, and Caring. We spend two months on each chapter, and during each class we dedicate a few minutes to discussing the featured character trait and the simple things your child can do to make it part of their everyday lives. The secret to our success lies in a unique point-based reward system that we created to excite kids about making daily progress!
GracieKids.com & Certified BULLYPROOF Belt Holders
Once your child is enrolled in the Gracie Bullyproof program, they will be loaded onto GracieKids.com, our interactive online learning center for Gracie Bullyproof. With comprehensive videos covering every technique your child learns in class, you and your child can use your online access to review past lessons and learn new techniques – from home!
As your child progresses through the curriculum, he/she will be awarded belts according to the Gracie University Youth Ranking System. The list of all Certified BULLYPROOF Belt Holders can be viewed at www.GracieKids.com, as soon as your child earns their white-yellow belt (the first belt after white belt), their name will be added to the list!
